Office location needed!

An award-winning local nonprofit responsible for gracing San José’s streets, schools and parks with upwards of 65,000 shade trees over the past 20+ years is in desperate need of in-kind office space.

Our City Forest’s staff and service members total 40, and they need either one large space or two smaller spaces/warehouses totaling at least 5,000 sq. ft.   

The City of San Jose has run out of room for the group which has raised $10+ million in non-City funding to improve our urban forest and the health of our city.

To help, please contact Rhonda Berry at 408-799-9502


Giving the gift of green.

All memberships are tax-deductible and 100% contribute to the planning and development of urban forestry in our local neighborhoods. Thank you for helping grow our future.
